“Great apartment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

These apartments are modern and have a fully equipped kitchen, a reasonable sized bedroom and large bathroom. The rooms were spotless. The managers were also very friendly and assisted us with our enquiries about places to see. There is a supermarket close by where you can buy all you need to cook a meal. The apartments are quite close to the Duomo which is an easy 25 minute walk.

This group of clean comfortable and spacious studio and 1 bedroom flats are located in a quiet residential part of central Florence.
Il Doumo is an half-hour walk away, and the main railway station is 10 minutes by taxi.
Those are self catering flats. The one we stayed in had a good sized fridge, stove, oven and microwave. There were enough pieces of crockery, utensils, glasses and crockery.
The flats are cleaned, and towels are supplied weekly. However there is a launderette/laundromat next to the enterance of the block.
With the exception of a single adequate restaurant nearby, the nearest shops and restaurant are in the (touristy) areas around popular attractions.

I loved the apartment, it is really clean, not only the design, but the service of cleaning.
When you arrive, you can see that each part of apartment was really thought when they decided to open their doors.
The bathroom was excellent, the kitchen was easy with all new tool and 2 mineral water 1.5L in the refrigerator.
I was the 3rd person in the apartment, and slept in the sofá that became a good couple bed.
The service was really good, when we arrived we received the keys and all the explanation of the city. The map they gave to me, was already marked places such as restaurants, supermarkets, touristic points, they were kind all the time and called for taxi everytime we needed.
The laundry is located in the building and you can see as soon as you arrive, fact is that we saw first the laundry and then we found the number of the building.
In Florence, everything is near, you can walk from the apartment to the historic places in 15 minutes, but I was with my parents and got the taxi most of the time, the price spent was around 8euros to 12euros.
Supermarket close at 8pm.

Room Tip: I got the apartment 2C and 2E (I think it was 2E), both of them was in front of the building. The v...

I had been stayed 3 nights at this hotel. Hotel location is 15 minutes walk from Campo Di Marte train station. It's value for money because it's a modern apartment with full kitchen equipments. Will definitely recommend this to friends.

Loved the apartment, it was light, bright, modern clean and comfortable.
Pleasant 10 or so minute walk into the City, easy access to bakery and supermarket.
The spiral staircase to the 'loft' room would have been impossible with a large case and tough for anyone unsure on their feet but totally fine for us, I’m not sure all of the rooms are like this so ask if mobility is an issue. Nice welcome and helpful staff, in all a terrific stay at a good price.

Room Tip: 4E - Spiral staircase to twin room not really suitable for very small children or those with mobilit...

I was with my family at the hotel La farina and it was a pleasant experience. We were kindly received by Ricardo, the host, who is very polite, friendly and helpful. The hotel is a kind of flat and the bakery and the supermarket are very close. We did everything on foot or by taxi and it was pretty easy. We loved it!

Very much recommend- very good value considering inflated Florence hotel prices. Free parking which made life very simple, walking distance to all the sights and a huge apartment! Brand new and comfortable, everything we needed and more. Very helpful host too which made all the difference. Would stay again. Thank you.
